  1. hi teresa,nice post..i have started doing the motif.. thanks


  2. Hi Teresa, I hv made the motifs and they are simply beautiful but I still cant join them. i followed ur video on you-tube but i guess am too dumb. Is there an easier alternative? I tried joining the petals with a sl st but they are bunching up. Can i use chs to join effectively? Pls help...thanks again

  3. Valerie,
    You can modify the pattern and do chains around the motif and connect them that way.

  4. Hey Teresa,

    I repeated some of your rounds and added a couple more chains here and there... only to give it a different look. And i made a doily :) :) :)

    Looks cute :) Thanks!


  5. Teresa, I love ur motifs. I have made abt 20 of them, but I just cant get how to join them. I have already cut out the thread, now what should I do. Pls help Teresa!
